Signed to Oakland based Le Heat Records Double Duchess are vocalist and performance artist Krylon Superstar and emcee and producer davO. Together the duo deliver a raw but campy electronic sound unlike anything else. Krylon and davO met in 2010 and instantly began creating music inspired by their love for boys, being sassy, and the queer community of San Francisco. Krylon’s early years of vogueing in NYC, dancing as a club kid, and his international performance art pieces are all part of their live performances and visual presence. davO’s earlier years of fronting a live hip-hop/funk/punk band, mixed with his musical production, songwriting, and DJ experiences creates the sonic experience to compliment the visuals of this duo. Double Duchess influences are Baltimore club, booty breaks, ballroom house, all wrapped up in couture fashion!
Since the release of their debut EP Hey Girl! in March 2012, the two have been heating up the national queer and music scenes. Their second video ‘Bucket Betch’ (2012) received media buzz and became a Bay Area anthem. Before long, the duo began touring all over the east and west coast. In early October of 2012, they released an EP of remixes and finished out the year in the studio, creating a more developed, refined sound.
The single “Deviant” is available on itunes.
